en Limba Engleză Carte Hardback – 20 Sep 2011
With the first publication, in this edition, of all the surviving letters of Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961), readers will for the first time be able to follow the thoughts, ideas and actions of one of the great literary figures of the twentieth century in his own words. This first volume encompasses his youth, his experience in World War I and his arrival in Paris. The letters reveal a more complex person than Hemingway's tough guy public persona would suggest: devoted son, affectionate brother, infatuated lover, adoring husband, spirited friend and disciplined writer. Unguarded and never intended for publication, the letters record experiences that inspired his art, afford insight into his creative process and express his candid assessments of his own work and that of his contemporaries. The letters present immediate accounts of events and relationships that profoundly shaped his life and work. A detailed introduction, notes, chronology, illustrations and index are included.

'The collected Hemingway letters will be enthusiastically welcomed by the scholarly world as well as the legion of Hemingway enthusiasts around the world. He is not only one of the most important twentieth-century writers in the world, but a fascinating and frank letter writer. This collection will be an invaluable addition to the world of letters.' Noel Riley Fitch
'And so begins the ambitious - and highly anticipated - publication of The Letters of Ernest Hemingway, a vast collection that proves to be both a revealing autobiography and the passkey to his literary works. This first volume is a vibrant portrait of the artist as a young man, striking all the notes that will resonate as themes in the epic life and epochal literature that lie ahead.' A. Scott Berg
'This Cambridge edition of all of Hemingway's known letters is as elegant and proper a solution as one could wish to such a daunting challenge: how to make this treasure available to all interested scholars and readers for generations to come. I think that Papa Hemingway would be pleased.' Charles Scribner
'[Hemingway's] letters were never intended for publication, and they are surprising … Behind the hard-living, hard-loving, tough-guy literary persona we find a loyal son pouring his heart out to his family, an infatuated lover, an adoring husband, and a highly committed friend.' Robert McCrum, The Guardian
'A work of monumental authority, shrewd and sympathetic, which will be indispensable for anyone delving into Hemingway's childhood affections, adolescent bravura, and the hope, enthusiasm and disgust of his early manhood.' The Spectator
'Magnificently edited … [this volume] is a work of true literary scholarship … what makes this first volume more than a mere collection of juvenilia is that here is all the evidence of the writer - and the man - that he was to become.' Literary Review
'By any measure it's a Very Big Deal.' The Scotsman
'This book combines the most serious scholarship with great readability - the perfect Christmas gift.' Standpoint
'The existence of some of these documents (pre-dating Hemingway's fame) is close to a miracle, and the Letters is without question a spectacular scholarly achievement.' The Scotsman
'Hemingway's letters burst off the page with all his swaggering vigour, brio, brilliance, wit and rage.' The Guardian
'An intriguing insight into the evolving personality before it entered the public arena.' Dublin Review of Books
'… the expert work of the editors has made a landmark contribution to Hemingway studies and American literature with an impeccably produced first entry in this ambitious series.' Mark Cirino, American Book Review
